I've walked by this place for 6 months without even knowing it was there until I cam across the reviews on trip advisor. It's really small (only 9 or 11 tables). Eaten here twice, once for breakfast and once for afternoon tea. Both very lovely. But as it's pretty small you would have to reserve a table

My nephew recommended this little cafe to us, and we arrived just after norrmal lunchtime, so managed to find a table for two (it's a popular place). Much of the food here is home made and home grown, which is great. My sister had a lovely potato and herb soup, while I chose a chocolate cake with coffee. Both were... More

We were lucky enough to snag a table on a Sunday before the next reservation came in, but it had to be quick, so no High Tea.. Soup, Potato Pancakes, and Soft boiled Eggs all did not disappoint. Made with the freshest ingredients. They are closed Monday & Tuesday so Make a reservation - and try the tea!

We were looking for a place to have lunch right before we went into Amsterdam Museum and found this place. We were lucky enough to get seats as it's a very busy a place. It's a small place that has great soup, salad, sandwiches and tea for lunch. People were incredibly friendly and the food was excellent. I had their... More

We found the restaurant by recommendations from friends who lived in Amsterdam. The food delicious and fresh, the wait staff were very friendly even with our tired and fussy 4 year old. It was an excellent lunch as we hid indoors from the rain.

After reading all the trip advisor reviews, Gartine was on my to do list when I came to Amsterdam, and I'm so very glad it was! I risked not booking, and they thankfully managed to squeeze us in. I had the pancakes with maple syrup and nuts and my partner had the French toast. We both thoroughly enjoyed it! Its... More

We stumbled across this little place completely by accident on our last day, and boy do I wish we'd found it earlier! Wonderful decor, very small however so I would recommend booking, even though we lucked out and got a table on the spot. The owners are simply lovely, so nice and made lots of time for us even though... More

My husband and I went to Gartine for breakfast when we first arrived into Amsterdam, not really knowing our bearings or where we were - what a little treasure, tucked away down a lovely little street. Inside, the decor is wonderful and there is such a nice, welcoming atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious, great coffee and really accommodating staff. All in... More

Such a lovely cafe tucked away in a side street. Had a beautifully made fresh breakfast on my first day in Amsterdam. Really lovely almost tea room mixed with funky cafe feel to it, a bit pokey but worth the wait for a table. If you like fresh clean food this is the place for you and reasonably priced too.
